I say leave the real small ones at home with a responsible babysitter. We started taking our kids to some outdoor shows when they were about 7 or 8 yrs. Here was our criteria. There had to be ample space in the back of the crowd for a large blanket to be placed. We would not smoke or ingest any mind altering substances. With these criteria, arenas like Red Rocks were out, too crowded. We never took them to Dead shows, again too crowded and too many innappporopriate (for the kids) activities out in the open. I remember taking them to shows on the ski slopes of Snowmass, Co for the Nevilles, Bonnie Rait and Lyle Lovett. There was plenty of space up the mountain where we could hear the music, but we were actually removed from the crowd and there was a nice family atmosphere going on. Also we went for 2 or 3 years to the Aspen/Snowmass Jazz Fest for Santana, War, Willie Nelson Susan Tedeschi and others. Again, plenty of open space in the rear, near the food courts and vendors.

I'll agree with you that the line-up makes a big difference. I've taken my kids to see Los Lobos, Green Day, Ringo Starr and Paul McCartney. No problems at those shows with unwanted exposure to drunkeness/druggedness/aggression etc. except that that poser from Green Day dropped the F bomb every chance he got (how shocking and alternative dude -- too bad your tour was sponsored by verizon!).

Have to agree leave the small children at home. Let everyone else enjoy the concert also.
